The rich harmonies of Brisas del Palmar have been pleasing crowds in Santiago de Cuba since their inception in 1999 – and now they are bringing their sweet sounds to Salmon Arm.
Brisas del Palmar will play a special performance at the Salmar Classic Theatre on Friday, Sept. 11 at 7:30 p.m.
The quintet proudly presents a varied repertoire of traditional Cuban music: a capellas, romantic ballads, salsa, son, guaracha, merengue, cumbia, bachata, where they perfected all these types of music and original compositions, while reflecting their unique style and interpretation.
They are known in Cuba as one of the leading groups of traditional music and won special recognition at the 2000 International Festival of Boleros in Santiago de Cuba. They placed second in the 2001 Festival of Singers of the Americas, held in Guantanamo, Cuba.
In winter months, Brisas del Palmar performed at the Bodequita del Medio, the Havana bar made famous by Ernest Hemingway, now the most important music venue in Havana.
They have toured B.C. since 2003, playing to enthusiastic crowds at music festivals and concerts.
Tickets are available at the Salmar Grand and Classic theatres. Admission is $25 for adults, $20 for seniors. Kids 12 and under are free.
